The convergence of climate change with crises in food and finance make finding solutions to the world’s growing water problems more urgent than ever. The 2009 World Water Week in Stockholm will explore the circumstances that promote access to water for various populations and sectors in different contexts.
Between August 16 and 22, leaders and experts from all over the world will once again gather in Stockholm to formulate common goals and find constructive solutions to our planet’s water crisis. While the event’s ambitions grow with every year, the size is maintained to provide an ideal arena for sharing best practices, formulating policies and reviewing international processes. Stockholm provides representatives from governments, industry, NGOs, academia, UN bodies and water professionals with an effective platform to exchange views, gain knowledge and build networks.
